According to Sony, “The Cloud Remote for PS4 programs your remote for you. Programming the remote is straightforward with the downloadable PDP Cloud Remote App, which uses advanced Cloud technology to auto-detect devices connected to the PS4 for hassle-free remote programming.”

It has almost all the features that will help the users to drop those 2 or 3 extra remotes that they are currently using to stream content from PS4.

The design is quite compact and makes its users capable to reach every button on the remote easily. The PS4 Cloud Remote comes with Power button and other inputs that users may require like volume controls for TVs connected to the PS4. It uses Bluetooth instead of IR sensors to control the PS4 system, which makes it even handier. Further, PDP has equipped its remote with navigational keys to make it easier for users to access menus and apps including the Action buttons, Share, Options, and PS buttons.

Sony also has an offer for the gamers who plan to buy the new remote. Players will get a 30-day free trial of the PlayStation Vue Core plan worth $49.99 with the purchase of the Cloud Remote at GameStop or Amazon. The Vue Core plan offers 65 channels of live TV from networks like Cartoon Network, AMC, ESPN, NFL Network & MLB Network, etc. The offer is valid for new users only and those already onboard the Vue Core plan are not eligible to claim this promo. Also, the deal is only available while supplies last.

The device is officially licensed by Sony Interactive Entertainment and will be available for an MSRP of $29.99. Interested players can pre-order it at PDP’s website, GameStop, and Amazon.
